I am trying to find information about my great-great grandmother Masu. She was born May 7, 1858 I believe in Kyoto and was married to Fukutaro Takaratsu. She is a direct descendant of Kato Kiyomasa. The family history we know only by word of mouth is that Masu's maiden name was Zeits/Zeitz? This is obviously a caucasian name. Can anyone explain this? This has been a puzzle to my family for at least 75 years. We would greatly appreciate any information.
With sincere appreciation,
